Female 'Experienced Sex-Crimes Prosecutor' Will Question Kavanaugh, Accuser

Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh flatly denied allegations of sexual misconduct leveled against him and said he plans to fight for confirmation to the nation's highest court, according to excerpts of a Fox News interview scheduled to air Monday night.

"The truth is I've never sexually assaulted anyone, in high school or otherwise", Kavanaugh said in an interview on Fox News Channel's "The Story with Martha MacCallum", to air on Monday evening. Kavanaugh, who will also testify, has vehemently denied Ford's allegation.

"It's totally political", he said.

Even before the latest turns, the carefully negotiated hearing at the Senate Judiciary Committee with Kavanaugh and Ford carried echoes of the Anita Hill hearings in 1991.

Kavanaugh is President Trump's choice to fill the vacancy on the U.S. Supreme Court created by Justice Anthony Kennedy's retirement.

"We have to fight for him, not anxious about the other side", he said.

Ramirez did her best to push him away but his penis ended up touching her. Kavanaugh was a freshman at the time in 1983.

White House spokeswoman Kerri Kupec said after publication of the story: "This 35-year-old, uncorroborated claim is the latest in a coordinated smear campaign by the Democrats created to tear down a good man". Ramirez says she specifically remembers hearing his full name.

Trump would prefer faster Kavanaugh confirmation
But it's not clear whether that will happen, or whether the Senate Judiciary Committee is interested in hearing her story. Ashley Kavanaugh was asked whether she wondered if her husband was telling the truth about the allegations against him.

It will not include other witnesses nor has it been decided whether staff attorneys or senators will ask the questions. Kavanaugh, a federal appeals court judge, has denied the allegations and said he would be willing to testify.

Collins said Monday she remained undecided about Kavanaugh.

Trump, himself accused during the 2016 presidential race of sexual misconduct with numerous women, twice offered words of support for Kavanaugh while in NY to attend the U.N. General Assembly.

The committee's top Democrat, Senator Dianne Feinstein, has called on Grassley to postpone Thursday's hearing in order to investigate Ramirez's accusations.

Not only did the New York Times fail to corroborate the story, but Ramirez was, at the time the story was being investigated and witnesses were being sought out, not certain Kavanaugh was the guilty party.

The White House is approaching Ford's potential testimony with trepidation, nervous that an emotional performance might not just damage Kavanaugh's chances but could further energize female voters to turn out against Republicans in November. Spokesman Taylor Foy said the panel is looking into it.

There's precedent for the Federal Bureau of Investigation to look into sexual misconduct allegations of Supreme Court nominees. Which is to say that if Republicans want to spend this week questioning and even discrediting Ramirez, they have evidence to use to go that route.

Ford's account, days ago in The Washington Post, detailed Kavanaugh's sexual assault on her - including getting her drunk, ripping her clothes and forcing his hand over her mouth to prevent her from screaming - while both were at a teenagers' party during their years in exclusive D.C. area private high schools.

Senate Judiciary Committee chairman Chuck Grassley, a Republican, wrangled with Ms Ford's lawyers for the last week over the exact terms of her appearance.

The committee also released a letter from Ford, dated last Saturday, in which she said coming forward with her charge was "something that a citizen couldn't NOT do". They can all be falsely accused of sexual misconduct - and have their lives destroyed - thanks to feminists and liberal lawmakers who care more about their party's political agenda and ideology than any semblance of due process.
